Sumner Redstone Profile

If you frequent this blog, you’ve probably read up on Walter Elias Disney, Michael Eisner, and Bob Iger and know some interesting stories about those men and their personalities.  Portfolio.com has a long and interesting piece by Lloyd Grove on Sumner Redstone, the octogenarian who has controlled a cinema chain, Midway Games, Viacom (Paramount Pictures, etc.), and CBS.  It is fascinating to compare and contrast – mostly contrast.  Before you click through, I warn that some of the language is bit…salty.  I have to wonder how things would have been different for Michael Eisner if he’d stayed with Paramount.
